Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Inspired by the famous home improvement warehouse, The Big Book of Tools offers budding handymen (and handywomen) their first detailed look at tools and how to use them. This informative book also contains the basic how-tos, from fixing a leaky faucet to building a playhouse.

A strong and praiseworthy element of the book focuses on safety. The first segment addresses dust masks, safety goggles, and hard-hats and the purpose of each item. Convenient "Tool Tips" appear along the border of the page. From keeping tools clean to painting techniques, these handy pointers remind young readers that staying alert and being responsible is a big part of working with tools.

Plumbing is the first topic, with an explanation of how to fix a leaky faucet. The language is clear and concise, wonderfully suited for young readers. The various types of tools used in plumbing, such as pliers, screwdrivers, and wrenches, are all illustrated and briefly described. The Shelving and Storage section follows a father and son as they build a shelving unit for the playroom. This fairly involved project includes the use of a mallet, ball-peen hammer, and pry bar. Kids are, of course, not expected to use these item themselves, but knowing their purpose and correct names helps little helpers truly understand their project. The back of the book includes a tool glossary -- a convenient reference for kids and adults. This helpful guide is a great gift for young tool enthusiasts. (Amy Barkat)

Children's Literature
Home Depot has expanded its reach into the children's market with a line of products ranging from toys to educational books. In this book, The Home Depot Big Book of Tools, children are introduced to the world of construction and the tools required for just about any construction project. In addition to addressing each type of project, such as plumbing, wallpapering, and shelving and storage, the book offers tips and a detailed description of the tools that may be needed throughout the process. Also included is a tool glossary at the back. While the information is extremely thorough and the book is well-written, the subject matter is somewhat dry and may not hold the attention of young children unless they are a "Bob the Builder" wannabe. Older children who are particularly into building and engineering may find the book useful at times, but more as a resource than something accessed frequently. Readers will find this to be a very basic, fact-filled book that doesn't offer much other than to occasionally fill a quick reference need when a youngster is beginning a new construction project. 2001, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, $12.95.
